Comment : Popping Noises solved?
Posted by Taylor on Wed 9:51pm 8 March 2006
I did indeed got to visit my doctor imediately. Once I got there, my cast was taken off and of course he checked if anything was seriously wrong. I had to go through x-rays, and once again, the popping noises where heard again. But as every popping noise was heard, the pain in my leg was getting worse everytime I tried to move a part of my leg.
He said the popping noise coming from my leg was actually coming from my right ankle joint. The doctor also stated that the ligament around my ankle was really loose, and my muscles were severely stretched out. And everytime I tried to move my leg, the pressue on my ankle would cause the muscles to stretch out more.
This really put pressure on me 'cause now I know walking is not an option for a VERY LONG TIME!
I was put into another leg cast, and my doctor is debating with an OS and my parents whether or not I should have surgery on my leg nad ankle to kind of speed up the recovery process. I was suppose to have one before, but they thought it was better to heal for itself. It did work, but I got into another accident which lead me to this.
I don't know whether or not to go through a surgery or just let it heal itself? I am scared, but is it for the better of my leg? I'm just glad that support is there for me. My friends, parents, family, cheer coach, and my boyfriend is there to be with me when I reall need it.
Please tell me if a surgery is better?
